EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHERS

It's Factual Without Any Facts

David J. Carol


DAVID J. CAROL


To me, it's interesting that I can see something, point my camera at it and in 1/500th of a second, we have this moment in time preserved forever. We have no idea what that moment really is about. We don't know anything about the subject, in this case the man, or the context of the situation. We have no idea what is actually going on. There is some kind of implied feeling of truth or honesty in the witnessing of an actual event that is real, in that it definitely happened. The photograph is proof that this thing I saw existed. It's factual without any facts! I need to take more pictures!
